This is definitely an overlooked show. I've read that it doesn't have all the excitement that the other 11/70 Port Chester shows have. However I love the acoustic set. And the electric set has its fare share of exciting moments. The centerpiece of the electric set is the Truckin>drums>Other One. This is probably the longest drums into the Other One, running over 16 minutes! A real sweet Other One eventually segues into Casey Jones.

Subject: The GRATEFUL DEAD "Live On Stage" November 07, 1970 at the Capitol Theater, Port Chester, New York, U.S.A.


This audience recording is pretty amazing. It will sound even better when EQ'd for playback.

"~Very Magical~" show from the Capitol Theater.

An Audience recording "Masterpiece".

I highly recommend giving these audience recordings a chance, it's a taste that is acquired.

Thanks to Ken, Jack & Marty for sharing this wonderful audience recording with all of us, we love you.

Eat, Drink, Be Merry & Listen to the GRATEFUL DEAD.

Thanks for the LOVE from 1969.

Subject: Audiance recording is not the best
I had a hard time focusing on the tunes w/ the audio levels bouncing so dramatically. In some cases there is such a difference in audio quality that the songs don't sound like they are from the same taping source (or even venue). When you have to jump up to turn down/up the volume or reballance the EQ or fear that the next song is going to blow your ears, it makes for an uncomforatable listening experience. There are conversations taking place amidst the music that, while interesting, could probably be avoided. Show is overshaddowed by the technical dificulties (2stars). Set list is decent(3stars).
